There is one more thing!
Everybody in the hall stand-up and cheers !!!
Steve: Did you ever had this experience ?
You are in the living room and you want to see soprano rerun from HBO when you have a free time without change TV channel which is showing your wife's favorite program? Or you want to see your Apple Web page in the sofa without going back to your iMac ? You have 3 kid in the home and they want to have their own Mac for each.
Well. I think it is about time to solve this problem!
Well you know that we made Quarz as PDF based engine. And it is not bit-map based but vectorized. If you remember old time, there was X-window which is connected to UNIX server and many people could share one machine ! SGI was one of the best case of using it since all of their interface are X-window based !
And this is 21st century and we will have 21st century version of one. Yes. It is not your old macintosh anymore ! And it is totally different than what others are just showing as proto-type!
Apple will introduce .........i****v2 !!!!
-It is i****v2 ! - Maybe named iPAD ?
-I dont know exact name for it . I will call it iPAD now on.
It has OS X lite OS with Netboot client mode.
- OS X in Any macintosh can be Netboot server for iPAD. iMac, ibook are also included.
It can boot from Airport II !. And because it is Client software, it does not need reboot iPAD! it will just replace its own window with servers window.
And no speed decrease since all the calculation is done on Server!
And it is using OS X -lite that it can be use by itself. We will have many many S/W for the Lite version. The QuickTime is the first of it and you can playback Quicktime file and read PDF E-book without server.
And thanks to domino chip inside of each Mac, you will be able to see live NFL anywhere using MPEG-4 streaming.
- I have to do some work now . Part5 will continue soon. sorry

I don't think the i**** appears to be any closer than before.
But, with the economy seemingly on the upswing, maybe they'll dust if off again.
My vote is NO. Apple is once again fighting on many fronts. The least of which appears to be education. The most of which appear to be music and entertainment. Just the opposite focus for a good i***** product, IMO.
